i like it , too. The architects said the halo effect was coincidental. I have a beautiful photo of it at sunset last winter. Amazing.

No need to get upset, Miss Texas. I think there may have been some confusion here. According to the Jersey Journal...

Those photos of the damage at LSP are intense. How about the computer monitor next to the 9/11 memorial--did that wash in from the river? I hope it just came from the old RR terminal or something... if people are disposing of CRTs in the Hudson, I weep for humanity.

Oh, and as far as what views are ruined by that horrific memorial? How about this one, and the view of the Terminal from across the canal:

We need a new bridge to get there, or the old one fixed. This bridge is important for people in Lafayette to get to downtown JC and back. Its not just a cute bridge for people to get to the park. I use it for commuting to work every day.
At least open up some pathway along the turnpike from Jersey or Grand to Johnston.
Put a temporary pontoon bridge there at least for now.

Sorry but have to agree that I wish "empty Skys" got knocked down. There must of been a better & cheaper way to make a classy memorial there. Those walls are Horrible.........

The way it glows inside at sunset is amazing, especially around 9/11, I suspect they aligned the walls for maximum halo effect.

I dont get why people hate Empty Sky. I like it.

I've heard "it blocks the views." Where are you that it's blocking your view where you can't just walk around it?

Fantastic, you guys are great! Last saturday in the park I was told that our efforts was going to accelerate the reopening, and you are right, that's amazing the quantity of junk still deposited on the rocks! I feel privileged meeting Jon there, one founder of the Friends of Liberty State Park. It was also nice seeing various associations pulling their membership together.

A bunch of us dog owners and parents got together and cleaned up the Morris Canal annex section on Sunday. Many passer-bys chipped in. I won't write the name of the hero who organized it in case it turns out that it's illegal to clean a park or something but it wasn't Texel.

But let me say - the crap that washed up onto that little strip of land was epic. The next time I see someone toss trash into the Hudson, I think I'm going to make them jump in and fish it out!

I was really hoping to learn that "empty sky" had been toppled and would be too expensive to repair.

'Disaster' conditions at Liberty State Park in Jersey City will cost millions to fix

By Anthony J. Machcinski/The Jersey Journal
on November 17, 2012 at 3:03 AM

Hurricane Sandy left Liberty State Park, the Downtown Jersey City attraction that draws over 5 million visitors a year, looking like ?a disaster movie,? officials said yesterday during a tour of the park.

The park, which has been closed since Sandy hit on Oct. 29, suffered extensive flooding and wind damage, and repairs could take up to nine months and cost up to $5 million.

Trees that dotted the popular tourist destination were felled from high winds. Liberty Walk, a popular attraction for runners looking for the best views of the New York City skyline, was destroyed, with rocks from the sea wall scattered across the trail.

?This is like something out of a disaster movie,? said Mark Texel, of the state Department of Environmental Protection, as he walked on the path.

One of the hardest hit areas of the park was the CRRNJ Terminal, built in 1889. Texel said floodwaters got as high as 6 feet inside the terminal and remained that deep for more than seven hours.

?The terminal won?t be open for a while,? said Rich Boornazian, also of the DEP, adding that all the terminal?s interior electrical systems were destroyed.

Liberty State Park Deputy Superintendent Jon Luk added, ?My first reaction was shock. We mobilized to prepare before the storm, but we couldn?t have done anything prior to prevent this.?

Empty Sky the memorial commemorating the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 was not damaged during the storm.

While there is widespread damage throughout the park, Texel expects it to fully recover, with some areas opening as soon as Thanksgiving weekend.

?We?re very proud of all the efforts our workers put in,? Texel said. ?This park is a priority and we?re going to do everything we can to get it back to normal as fast as possible.?

Returning to normal will not be a quick or cheap process. Park officials expect restoration costs to reach as high as $5 million and take as long as nine months to complete.
